The new VICAMATIC-2 tester from Controls.
Italian testing equipment manufacturer Controls, which has a long tradition in designing and manufacturing automatic setting time testers, has launched a new third generation machine the VICAMATIC-2.
The new machine has been completely redesigned following the innovative CVi-TECH philosophy built on four key principles: efficient technology, intuitive and smart software, functional and industrial design and modular expandability.
“The new VICAMATIC-2, an automatic setting time tester for cement, mortar and gypsum, is said to feature superior functionality thanks to the easy-to-use interface and software; the large accessibility to the test space; the practical in-water testing accessory, and the expandability over the time to create a network with up to 32 independent units all controlled by a single PC through LAN hubs,” says Controls.
The company says the unit is suitable both for standard tests and for research purposes allowing easy setting and storage of user-defined test profiles including test start delay; penetration points position; manual or automatic penetration rate; free or driven falling mode; automatic end-test detection, and automatic determination of initial and final setting time at customisable depth thresholds.
